For Swin Cash, simply inhabiting one world has never been the way she approaches her professional life.
As a player in the WNBA, she combined longevity with skill, exceptional personal performance with championships — from the NCAA titles at UConn in 2000 and 2002 to her three WNBA titles with Detroit and Seattle, and gold medals at both the 2004 and 2012 Olympics. It was Cash, not her teammates Sue Bird or Diana Taurasi, who won Most Outstanding Player at the 2002 Final Four. But most significantly, Swin Cash always shows up. Her 479 games rank eighth in WNBA history, and she led the league in games played five different seasons.
